Beautiful circular route starting from the Blyde Canyon to Forever Resort, matching the marked roads with different animal names.
To say that we were staying at the resort, so we did not have to pay to enter this one (it is a saying since the accommodation was not given to us for free). In case of coming from outside you have to pay and register to be opened by the barrier. In any case you have to register at the reception (it is the tradition in these parts) so you do not "miss".
We started walking along the Kadishi (or Tufa) Trail, accompanying the homonymous river among leafy forest, visiting some beautiful waterfall and some tempting pool. The day was cloudy, with the threat of sparking, so we were not tempted to take a bath and the truth is that we did not experience any heat, but under normal conditions I think it would have been difficult to resist the temptation.
We then leave the Loerie Trael on the left, to continue walking along the Guinea-fowl Trail, to immediately connect with the Leopard Trail, getting better and better views of the Blyde Canyon with the 3 Rondawels of backdrop, without a doubt an image not to forget . The last section is all up the Leopard Trail to the top viewpoint, already on the asphalt of the road, where we return to our cabin.
Without doubt one of the best walks that can be done in the area, as it combines beautiful stretches of crystal clear water, with good waterfalls and pools, very leafy forest areas and spectacular views of the Blyde Canyon and the Three Rondawels.
